It was never about the truth.
It was never about justice.
But it was all about Donald Trump’s agenda. And ego.
And that is the truth.
The truth is there must be accountability.
“No one can place a dagger on the throat of democracy.”
Joe Biden’s forceful speech was a dagger placed straight in Trump’s oversized ego.
Biden spoke to the nation on the first anniversary of the storming of the capitol. Powerfully, the President of the United States didn’t pussy foot around. He named the former pussy-grabbing president. He called him out, laying blame squarely where it should land.
On Donald Trump.
Today, in the name of democracy and truth, Joe Biden stormed Mar-a-Lago shattering Trump’s fragile ego into pieces. “He’s not just the former president he’s the defeated former President,” Biden firmly stated.
Like loser, the word is pure kryptonite to Donald Trump. The explosion in his head likely sent reverberations all through West Palm Beach.
It is time to name Trump’s dangerous rhetoric for what it is.
It is fascist with all the dangers that ideology implies.
No Means No
Know-nothing Trump never heard a “no” he couldn’t dismiss.
We should never have been surprised that Trump was trying to physically force himself on America after she loudly and clearly said No.
It’s how an abuser works.
Real men stalk women, never taking no for an answer, persistent even in the face of rejection. We had been abused for four years but he just wouldn’t leave. When our country said no, he still forced himself on us, twisting truths, and getting violent.
Like the abuser he is.
How unfit he is. How diminutive, and stunted. This parody of a former president, a grandiose pseudo billionaire totally and completely morally bankrupt.
How history will remember him- not for his unfair treatment by the media and the electors but for his inadequacies. His failures and lack of character on full display daily for all to see.
His impotence will live in infamy. So will his near destruction of our democracy.
He is the ultimate loser.
A year ago everything nearly crumbled. It held. But barely. We need to pay attention. Or we will all be losers.
